I did fifteen minutes in my "zone" this morning. This week's zone is the kitchen, and I worked on an open shelf. Maybe by the time I ask Phyllis to watch the cats again the difference will be noticeable to her or others. Certainly I can tell. The sink is always clean, the dishwasher cleared of clean dishes right away. It is a lot easier when one lives alone. I can make plans and do them and nobody is out there diverting me. Only myself, actually.
The leg extensions yesterday hurt the backs of my knees, even at the lowest weight and with plenty of warming up. Now the fronts hurt too, at the bottom of my knees. I need to ask someone about this and get the exercises straight.
Today, this afternoon, I cleaned the outside and top of my refrigerator. Took off all the magnets and stray papers, removed all the cereal, flours, and other things that were on top, cleaned it all, polished it. Then returned things in better order, dumping a lot in the process. I can tell the difference. One more little change.
I have another shelf I am going to work on today, and that will complete the work on the kitchen for today.
And I just filed Mary's tax return electronically. She'll get her refund in ten to sixteen days and she'll give some of it to me the next time I visit. That works for me.
I haven't done any exercise yet. I thought of taking out my bike because the day was so beautiful but it is also very windy. I have tried to be one with the wind, to make it mine, and all that Buddhist kind of stuff, but it hasn't worked for me. Instead I just try not to ride when it's windy. So I will probably do Kathy.
My knees did not take kindly to Kathy tonight, and they hit me with some sharp pains when I just took the trash out right now. I am definitely not doing the leg extensions tomorrow.
I feel like a cold is coming on. This has happened before, though, and has just gone away without becoming anything. So I wait, and look around for my zinc & C tablets.
